Following last Spring’s debut of the exciting Hood 35 LM series, Hull #2 was launched in June of 2023. This “Midnight Blue” beauty is available for purchase, a rare opportunity with typical backlogs pushing 2-3 years.

The strength of this collaboration between Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding and CW Hood Yacht Design is built from the keel up, with its solid cold-molded composite hull topped off with light-weight cored carbon fiber decks and superstructure. The result is a boat that is light enough to deliver great performance and efficiency, with enough mass left in the hull to punch through some serious chop.

Taking full advantage of the semi-custom nature of this series, she boasts an additional foot and a half of length in the optimized Modified-V hull.  

Powered by twin Volvo Penta D6 440’s, she’ll easily top 40 knots, and cruise comfortably in the low 30’s.

The Volvo DPI (duo-prop) outdrives, joystick steering, and interceptors, all integrated through Volvo’s Electronic Vessel Control (EVC), provide complete control around the dock, with outboard-like performance and handling on the bay. The Side-Power bow thruster adds an additional layer of control in tight spaces, while the boat’s roll motion is reduced by the Seakeeper Gyro Stabilizer. Trimming the drives enables shallow water running, and beaching when fully raised.

In the forward cabin you will find a full galley, double berth and head with separate shower, as well as air conditioning and hot water, even at anchor, thanks to the 5KW generator.

The pilot house features a full helm station to starboard, and companion seat to port, with unobstructed 360 degree sight lines. Locating the engines near the transom allows for a wide open cockpit space. The aft bench seat and sun pad combine to form a large hatch, providing better engine access than most yard mechanics are accustomed to. Extensive sound insulation keeps engine noise below conversation levels.

It’s worth noting that the large open cockpit space could easily accommodate additional built-in seating and/or a wet bar if desired.

Future versions of the Hood 35LM could include enclosed pilothouse and flybridge layouts, as well as various propulsion options, including Jets, IPS, I/O’s or Outboards, all of which have been considered in this versatile design.

The Hood 35 is cold molded.  The hull construction is vacuum laminated Eglass/epoxy outer skin using tongue and grove Douglas Fir as the first layer, followed by two additional layers of cedar applied on the 45 degree before the final fiberglass skin is applied and then paint.

The deck is made off a mold using carbon fiber and Corecell foam and Coosa high density foam in high load areas. The deck is infused to produce the lightest and strongest structure with these materials.


The Volvo Penta Interceptor System is a boat trim system for simpler, safer and more comfortable driving. It is integrated into the Electronic Vessel Control system which makes it extremely easy to handle. 

The precise manual control function can be extended with three fully automatic modes, each developed to improve the boating experience, in terms of comfort, visibility and low fuel consumption.  The third mode, “Active Ride” is another smart feature that will redefine your concept of cruising comfort.

Lyman-Morse is extremely proud to announce that the Hood 35 LM “Shadow” has been named Best New Power Vessel by Classic Boat Magazine. This is the third boat we have had nominated for this prestigious award in just 4 years (ANNA in 2019 and the Hood 57 in 2020).


Power and Motoryacht Magazine stopped by our marina in Camden, ME to walkthrough and test “Shadow”, Hull #1 of the Hood 35LM series.
